Anyone every drift corkie and yarn under a bobber for winter steel? seems like maybe an ok idea??? But maybe not
+1in my experiences it doesn't work too well. When i first started fishin', i hated losing gear drifting, so the float was my safety and you bet, I tried it lol The issue is that corkies are buyoant, and designed in a way that works effectively for floating above a small amount of weight on the bottom, but with a float, you get a screwy presentation with a corkie. There's nothing natural about it. A float and a jig however, is deadly, and I highly recommend it.
None of the rivers is oregon have that reulation with the the placement of a weight as far as I know. The out of state Russian river has 12 inch reg. and you can't use bate.
I bought some of those marabou steelhead jigs. All of the jigs are pretty much pink and white with some fluff hanging off the back. I am probley gonna go to the Alsea in about to weeks for some early steel and drift those under a bobber
I think you are incorrect, page 8 of the regulations states that when fishing for salmon or steelhead all weights must be attached above uppermost hook. If useing hooks over5/8" or multiple piont hooks Weights must be 18" above the uppermost hook. When in doubt read the rules.
